Meet & Greet and pitch meeting

IMPORTANT CHANGE: We are now meeting at Panera Bread in Gambrills because we discovered our previous location is closed.  I will go early to try and snag us a table big enough for us and drop by our previous location and try to post a note on the door so if people miss this info they can find us.


Join us for our very first meeting on Saturday April 5, 2014 at 2:00. This will primarily be a meet and greet kind of get together, but we will be pitching some ideas for a fan film so we can begin to move on getting started.  So if you have an idea to pitch for a project be ready to share. 

We will be meeting at Caribou Coffee at Waugh Chapel in Gambrills Maryland.

    Sorry I could not make the meet. Here are some examples of some things I've played around with. I would not call these examples refined, but you can get an idea. https://vimeo.com/83272373 <= title test

    https://vimeo.com/43737195 <= Blender 3D Godzilla test. https://vimeo.com/37459723 <= early TARDIS and vortex test. https://vimeo.com/24022944 <= early insert test (The cooling tower was not really there.)

    https://vimeo.com/37891894 <= another Blender test model.

    BTW I've had what I thought would be a great idea for a Star Trek video for several years now with no real way to produce it. "Star Fleet: Reorganization"
    Imagine the disaster that is any reorganization and just map it into the Star Trek universe.

    I thought we had a great first meeting with creative and talented people as we worked together to find consensus on deciding on our first film project to work on together. I'm encouraged by our great start.

    I've been fighting bronchitis for nearly 2 weeks (ain't nobody got time for that), and won't make it today. Catch you at the next meet up.

    Good morning everyone, unfortunately I'm not feeling well today and will have to take a rain check on attending. I look forward to making the next meeting.

    • James

      Feel better soon Lesa, we will catch you next time!

    I may be late or wind up missing this. :( my 11am meeting got moved to noon. Will make it if I can!

    • James

      late is ok with me, but if you miss it we hope to see you next time :)

    Dave, I can't imagine our first meeting going all that long. An hour would be great, two hours would be ok as long as everyone is having a good time and we are having some good conversation. So getting done around 4 should not be a problem.

    Sarah, I hadn't thought of that. I plan on getting there early to scope it out. If the weather is nice outside the outside tables do give us a good option if it gets crowded. There are also a few other places right there in the same area we could move to if we like, but I think it will be ok. See everyone tomorrow. :)

      good idea thanks.

      No sweat. I run a group... Been in similar last minute binds.

  • Sarah

    Will we be meeting outside? Carribou on a Saturday afternoon could be a bit crowded for an already small venue. I assume we'll be outside, so I hope it's a nice day!! :-)

    April 4, 2014

  • Dave

    Any thoughts how long this will go? I'll be there, but have to be out by fourish.

  • James

    Thanks John Kammer, we will miss you at the meeting, but glad you are interested in participating. I am sure there will be plenty of need for various effects and animation.

    Oops, meant to join the group but send regrets for the meeting. Will be tough for me to get over there on any regular basis, but am capable of doing effects and title-work from home (near Dulles airport).

    Hey Margaret. Right now I am flirting with meeting at the Caribou Coffee at Waugh Chapel (Gambrills) but it depends on how many plan on coming. I am open to suggestions. There are a lot of new places that have opened up recently in the Crofton area too. William - Have fun at Amazicon!!! We will catch you at our next Meet-up!!

    Sounds awesome. I am curious to see where we'll be meeting. I'm basically in Annapolis area so crofton or gambrills works for me!

    Hi! I'm looking forward to getting involved with the group. Alas, the first weekend of April I'll be at the Amazicon in PA - this year's guests are from the original Battlestar Galactica! Hope to chat soon!
